    Tennessee Warbler? Nashville, TN 26 Sept 21

    Feeling more certain on this one. Just seeking confirmation. And since I probably havent said it enough this Warbler migration season, I really appreciate you guys and your help. Like, a ton.

    Warbling or Philadelphia Vireo? Or Tennessee Warbler? Nashville, TN 26 Sept 21

    Seeing the obvious white eyebrow, dark eye stripe, white undereye, looks to have yellow throat and yellow sides. Constrast considering typical IDs of Warbling and Philadelphia: Has the yellow throat of Philadelphia (contrast with the white throat of Warbling) but the yellow sides of Warbling...

    Another Warbler: Nashville Warbler? Clarksville, TN 24 Sept 21

    Been looking through Sibleys and Stokes for about the last hour, heres what I have come up with: Looks to have a dark (gray) head all around, down to the neck. Yellow chest and down the sides. Gray belly and undertail coverts. I believe I can see a white eyering in pic 3 also. Only thing thats...

    Tennessee Warbler? Or Nashville Warbler? Nashville, TN 19 Sept 21

    Thanks guys. I know these are super rough photos, the lighting was terrible due to cloudy/rainy weather and somewhat heavy topcover creating heavy shadowing. I wasn't 100% sure I'd get any responses at all. Thank you 2

    Tennessee Warbler? Or Nashville Warbler? Nashville, TN 19 Sept 21

    Admittedly tough photos to analyze, but sadly with the weather today, these may be the most detailed photos I have from the day. I am seeing dark or yellow on top, yellow chest, white undersides. Possibly dark eyebrow or eye streak. If no actual eyestreak, leaning to winter male Nashville...

    Warbler of some kind, Nashville, TN 18 Sept

    On the first photo, I did notice yellow feet upon looking again, which isnt a field mark of any Black-throated I can find. However, it is for Blackpoll. Everything else is good for Black-throated though

    Warbler of some kind, Nashville, TN 18 Sept

    I'm leaning towards either 1st winter juvi or female winter plumage Blackpoll. But im still unsure. I see white undertail, and the yellow doesnt go down the breast very far, which would lean me towards Blackpoll. However it doesnt look to have any streaks and is a more green-yellow than gray...

    Warbler of some kind, Nashville, TN 18 Sept

    Not sure on this guy at all.

    Blackburnian Warbler? Nashville, TN 18 Sept 21

    Feeling fairly certain abut this one. Initial thought was Magnolia (theres so many around) but it doesnt have the same tail pattern. Also, has more of a dark Auricular, kind of standing out. Please let me know if im correct on this! This would be a lifer for me

    Warblers, Vireos, and such; Nashville, TN 6 Sept 21

    Awesome thank you! I went back and looked at those you labeled as American Redstart and I noticed now the yellow base of the primaries. didnt notice that before. thank you! and on the Red-Eyed, thats unexpected since there was zero call from a usually vocal species. but i can see that red eye...

    Black Terns? Nashville, TN 6 Sept

    Flyover of a few Terns. Many sightings in the last month or so of some Black Terns. This was a pair.

    Warblers, Vireos, and such; Nashville, TN 6 Sept 21

    These are always so tricky, especially during this time of year when migration is going on #1 im thinking Warbling Vireo. White breast and yellow on sides, white eyebrow. #2 im thinking 1st winter American Redstart (adult American Redstarts in the area) #3-6 im leaning towards White-eyed...

    Magnolia Warbler? Nashville, TN 5 Sept

    Oh good to know! I noticed the slight streaks on the side coupled with the bluish head and back. I never noticed the tail but now i do! This is a lifer for me regardless, but was still hoping to find something else in the middle of all of these, since warblers tend to move in groups of different...

    Magnolia Warbler? Nashville, TN 5 Sept

    Are these all Magnolia Warblers? Was about 4 or 5 of them in a few bushes and trees. Unsure if I caught all of them. These were the best shots I could get. Last one is I think no doubt a Magnolia

    Shorebird seen at a lake in Central TN, 3 Sept 21

    And you are helpful, yes. But as stated just below this quoted post, you tend to come across rude. Its not just at me. I have seen multiple times in threads where you respond to other people's ID help with some crassness. For instance, in my Orchard Oriole thread back in June, you note 3...

    Shorebird seen at a lake in Central TN, 3 Sept 21

    Thank you KC, I appreciate you saying that. The reason I even asked in the first place was because it seems a good portion of the inquiries I post are met with some level of push-back, or at the very least a seemingly better/smarter-than-thou attitude, from butty. As if it was a hastle to answer...

    Empids; Nashville, TN 3 Sept 21

    Especially on the lower bird in the 2nd pic, if you zoom in you can see a faint eyering.

    Empids; Nashville, TN 3 Sept 21

    Constantly unsure of Empids, they all look so incredibly alike in the guides. The first 5 in this series are the same bird. Thin but obvious dual wing bars, small compact body, sitting sort of leaned forward. Long tail with dip in the middle. What I dont see at all is an eyering. Fairly long...

    Shorebird seen at a lake in Central TN, 3 Sept 21

    After looking through field guides, I still wasn't sure. I couldn't find any photos, or illustrations, that looked like this. Which is why I asked in this forum. That's what it's here for right?

    Shorebird seen at a lake in Central TN, 3 Sept 21

    I see, very interesting. It flew in out of nowhere in this area I was not expecting to see ANY shorebirds at all. Thank you for the information

    Shorebird seen at a lake in Central TN, 3 Sept 21

    Curious on this one. Wasnt expecting it to be here, then it just flew in and pecked around for a while. Had a bobbing tail while it was feeding.
